water right now and will be for about five or six hours. it was spewing 1500 gallons a minute. that was for about an hour and a half. so a lot of wasted water there. but again, back out here live, you can see it is shut off and they need to repair the damage and open the road. as far as the impact of traffic, nothing significant. you can slowly move around the area. emergency workers are helping driving every drivers drives. the doubles of double digit growth for apple, shares falling more than $50 in after- hours trading. growth in the current quarter is expected to be only 7%. in the latest quarter apple earned $13 billion, the same as the year earlier. sales of iphones, ipads and mac
computers were below expectations. >> if they come but with a new revolutionary product line, considering they are essentially making products better instead, i think they're doing pretty well. >> apple's ceo tim cook told analysts yesterday that the company is working on some incredible stuff, so-called, but he didn't explain. another silicon valley company actually surprise the wall street after netflix lost money at the same time last year. the los gatos internet video service added two million u.s. subscribers during the final three months of this year beating expectations and it brings netflix total subscription base to a little over 27 million. now, the report sent shares up a whopping 35% in after-hours trading. city of menlo park has given facebook a thumbs-up to build a second campus near headquarters. the social network wants to develop a west campus where
taiko electronics operated. in exchange they will give the city more than a million dollars ove 10 years, not including the $200,000 facebook will pay in property taxes each year. a 13-year-old girl fights off a kidnapper in san jose and escapes. this man tried to grab the teen on 33rd and saint james streets last friday morning. a neighbor's home surveillance video caught the struggle. you can see the victim right there wearing white. she gets snatched from behind and dragged into a dark driveway. police say the girl started screaming and put up a good fight. 14 seconds later she breaks free and ends up running down the street. neighbors like manuel alvez came out. he even got in his car to look for the suspect. >> it wouldn't have been a pretty sight. i would have had do what i had to do and turn him in to the authorities. >> he said he missed the suspect by about a minute. brentwood union school district is under fire for
standing behind an abusive teacher. dina holder was convicted of kicking an autistic child two years ago. after it was reported, the district moved her to another school. earlier this month, the district settled with the family of the victim for nearly a million dollars and removed holder from her teaching position. last night parents lashed out at the board for allowing holder to teach. >> i don't care what's written down in a procedures manual or anything like that. i think that somebody should have took a stand and said, we need to get her away from kids. >> district officials say it's difficult to fire tenured teachers. as part of the settlement, holder is now on paid administrative leave and will resign at the end of the school year. since holder was only charged with a misdemeanor, she can teach if another district hires her. later this morning we'll get the governor's take on how things are going here in california. jerry brown will deliver his
state of the state address to the legislature. he is expected to tell his fellow democrats who control the senate and assembly that an improving budget situation does not mean they can go on a spending spree. in a surprising move, the pentagon announced it will lift its ban and allow women to be sent to the front lines. senior defense officials say defense secretary leon panetta will change the rules today that will allow women to serve in patrol and commando roles. the military services will have until 2016 to allow women to join combat positions. tough questions for secretary of state hillary clinton on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. the senate and house foreign relations committees grilled her for more than five hours yesterday. clinton was accused of not doing enough to provide protection and of misleading the public in the aftermath of four americans being killed. the secretary responded to say she is focused on trying to fix
what went wrong. and secretary clinton's replacement will begin his nomination process today. senator john kerry will go before the senate foreign relations committee in the first step to become the next secretary of state. to prepare for his new role, the senator will have to sell off many of his personal investments in order to avoid possible conflicts of interest. kerry is the senate's richest member with a estimated net worth of more than $184 million. 4:36 now. today california senator plans to introduce a bill to ban assault weapons in the united states. cbs reporter susan mcginnis says the move will set the stage for a debate over gun control. >> freedom! >> reporter: the fight over gun control moves from the streets to the halls of congress today. senator dianne feinstein of california will introduce a bill banning assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips. >> you need to do something about the guns. >> reporter: connecticut senators richard blumenthal and
chris murphy are cosponsoring the bill. they say the shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut proves there is a need to ban assault weapons. >> newtown fundamentally changed things. >> reporter: but the nra says law-abiding citizens need the same technology the criminals have. >> that means we believe in our right to defend ourselves and our families with semi- automatic firearms technology. >> reporter: the nra has a lot of support here on capitol hill especially in the house where many say an assault weapons ban has little chance of being passed. >> this is going to be a tough go. >> reporter: and it may be tough to win over some of the public, as well. on wednesday, sheriffs in missouri, california and texas announced they would not enforce new gun control laws such as an assault weapons ban. >> if there are laws passed that i feel and can prove that are unconstitutional, we will not enforce those rules and i think i have the powers to do
that. >> reporter: president obama is sending vice president biden on the road to gather public support. >> we are going to take it to the american people. >> reporter: the vice president's road trip begins tomorrow with a rally in virginia to promote gun control. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. you may have seen the snow kind of falling in susan's stand-up there. it's cold on the east coast and we have rain here. >> i know. i like it. it was good to see the rain. >> you love the sunshine. >> variety is the spice of life, guys. we'll try and mix things up a little bit for you. we have more clouds out there. and hi-def doppler isicking up on more scattered showers although most of those are located toward the south bay. a closer look, you can see down into the monterey bay you see a lot of that moisture in that direction. some of this will sweep up toward the bay area throughout the day today so we are going to leave a chance of showers in the forecast. you get the idea. core of the low down here and some of this moisture going to sweep up in our direction. so keep that umbrella handy.
a chance of showers for today. and a lot of clouds out there, very moist atmosphere and mild temperatures this morning. numbers now in the 40s and 50s. this afternoon, we are going to see clouds and still a chance of a few more scattered showers with an unsettled weather pattern and for the first time we have seen showers move back here in quite some time. the temperatures in the 50s, maybe some low 60s by the afternoon. a chance of more rain is on the way. we will talk about that coming up. right now let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> thank you, lawrence. we'll get a check of the bay bridge first, where there is some roadwork on the incline section of the bridge this morning. two right lanes are blocked until 5 a.m. sorry it looks like you're wearing drunk glasses in that camera shot but everything, as you can see, no delay towards the pay gates. otherwise, here's a live look at 101 and mckee in san jose. everything is flowing nicely this morning. the roads may be slick as lawrence said but overall traffic is at the limit. coming up, we'll show you where some more areas of overnight roadwork could slow you down
including across the dumbarton bridge. in the meantime, back to you guys. a man dies trying to cross a freeway on-ramp in oakland last night just before 9 p.m. on the 17th street on-ramp to westbound interstate 980. the highway patrol says the elderly victim was hit by three cars. two drivers left the scene but one is cooperating with investigators. the chp says the pedestrian may have been homeless. he was pronounced dead at the scene. oakland police have detained two people in connection with a fire in a vacant victorian on harrison street. the two were actually rescued from the roof of that burning house yesterday. according to the owner, the vacant property is known to house squatters. it took firefighters to put it out. a $26 million security system is approved for the new eastern span of the bay bridge. the system will include 175 video, infrared and thermal imaging cameras. equipment will be atop the bridge and beneath it and will include a monitoring system.
the system was originally expected to cost about $8 million. but we know how that goes. >> yeah no kidding. time now 4:41. they are calling it a temple of jazz in san francisco. next, the iconic comedian who greeted music fans on opening night. >> and nervous yappy dogs now chilling out. the quiet changes for a new animal shelter over in the east bay. >> football fans chew on this. why a super bowl staple is in short supply. >> and more 49ers photos to share for you on this thursday: keep your pictures coming this morning. email your photos to or upload them to be sure to include your hometown.
comedian and jazz fan bill cosby was emcee for opening night at this is a very special opening, a very special city, very special football team. [ laughter ] [ applause and cheers ] >> you better believe it. comedian and jazz fan bill cosby was at the bay area's newest music venue, the sf jazz center, for jazz performance and education. >> what an honor to have him come in. >> he must be in his 70s. >> he is still great. >> funny as ever. weather, rain but warmth? i guess we can't put the two together. >> that's what we're going to see today. >> a little bit of both. muggy outside. coming up out of the south, there is a chance of showers
outside for today. >> a lot of the moisture from the south. moving toward the gilroy morgan hill area into the monterey bay and the santa cruz mountains at the end of the loop there. you get the idea it is going to be unsettled lots of clouds, temperatures mild in the 40s and 50s. by the afternoon we'll see showers, temperatures mild into the 50s and low 60s. what a change from a couple of days ago. the big dome of high pressure overhead. now the trough carved out along the west coast but all this moisture being pumped up will keep things unsettled for today. carry that umbrella, you may need it from time to time. [ sneeze ] >> bless you! you will see showers on and off throughout the day today. and then it looks like even into the afternoon maybe a chance of showers into the evening hours maybe a couple of leftover showers too and then
things settle down. still if you plan to travel around the u.s., showers and possible delays sfo for today across the country still looking at bitter cold in the eastern half of 27 degrees, should be dry into new york. temperatures mainly in the 50s and 60s and leftover showers and then looks like partly cloudy skies into saturday, more rain, colder storm system sunday. that's a look at weather. let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> it wasn't me! it's my producer sneezing. he is such a "wizard of oz" behind the screen. let's go out live and we'll show you what's going on. that's live look at the san mateo bridge. everything is moving fine right now in both directions. 14 minutes is the drive time between hayward and foster city. elsewhere, overnight roadwork includes stretches of 880. so this morning it's a little farther south than typical between hesperian and washington. so once you get closer toward the oakland coliseum, everything is fine and it continues to look good towards
down oakland and the macarthur maze. on the maps, more overnight roadwork this time westbound and eastbound 84 the ongoing roadwork across the dumbarton bridge. the westbound should wrap up here soon by 5 a.m. and eastbound continues until 6 a.m. quick check of the marin county commute, no delay so far across the golden gate bridge. and mass transit no delay. that's traffic. back to you guys. >> thank you. it took 13 years but becker finally has a beautiful brand- new state -- berkeley finally has a beautiful brand-new state- of-the-art animal shelter. one of the improvements is what you don't hear. cbs 5 reporter john ramos takes a tour. reporter: even the people who worked at berkeley's animal shelter say the place was a dump. >> the old one had sort of the prison feel about it. >> reporter: but that was then.
this is now. the dona spring animal shelter opened in november and with it came an unfamiliar sound almost nothing. the kennels are separated by soundproof plexiglass and what a difference that has made. >> as you can see most of them are quiet and sleeping. in the other please for eight hours a day they were barking at each other and at us. >> reporter: now the animals are calmer and more sociable. they enjoy the view out the window watching the birds at nearby aquatic park. >> hi, girl. >> reporter: even cranky old blanche has decided it's not so bad to be around people. and it's healthier here, too. because each pen has separate ventilation, there have been no outbreaks of kennel cough or ringworm which plague most shelters. >> or if we were to get an outbreak of something like pavo virus in this room we can close this room down while the rest of the shelter is still functioning. >> reporter: there is a clinic with operating room and full- time vet tech. animals that used to be trucked
out for expensive private vet care can be treated here at home. >> it's wonderful on so many levels. it's good for the staff and in turn great for the animals and in turn great for the community records but no one is happier than greta. she came here missing part of a leg. the staff fitted her with a brand-new prosthetic. it will take a few months to get used to it but that's not going to slow her down a bit as she waits for a new home. >> with animals like greta and the other animals that are here, the best we can do for them is a facility like this which does restore one's faith that society can spend money correctly. >> reporter: in berkeley, john ramos, cbs 5. if your super bowl menu includes chicken wings, stock up now. last year's drought means corn prices are at an all-time high and chickens eat corn so chicken prices are up. as a result, farmers are producing fewer chickens and wings, which use to be the
cheapest part of the chicken, are now the most coveted and expensive. wing restaurants say it's difficult to keep up with the demand. >> come and get them as soon as you can. as soon as you can. that's one thing i can tell you. sooner the better. >> that's good advice. on super bowl sunday this manager expects a wait of two hours for walk-ins. last year many wing joints cut off preorders before the game. if you are making your own, expect prices to jump 14% to $2.11 per pound. my husband makes his own. >> that's not right, they should have them ready to go come super sunday. the 9ers held their first practice to prepare for the super bowl. yesterday's team workout is the first one since winning the nfc championship last sunday in atlanta. you can see it's a little cloudy at the 9ers facility in santa clara. the practice was moved up 30 minutes to avoid even the possibility of rain. the team has work to do as you might know in the next few days. the 9ers are set to fly to new
orleans on sunday. san francisco congresswoman nancy pelosi says picking out her favorite team for the super bowl was not easy even though she is a baltimore native. >> i'm wearing red. that's the 49ers color. let me say this and i tell this to mr. hoyer when he said he wanted to make a wager. i said i'm not -- i'm rooting for the 49ers, i'm not rooting against baltimore. i'm so proud of them. but my constituency is san francisco. [ laughter ] >> she is a smart woman. by the way, it was easy to make that decision as you just heard. her father was the mayor of baltimore if you didn't know. he even built the city's memorial stadium. but pelosi said her heart is always in san francisco because her constituents are here, too. of course spend a lot of time here. cbs 5 will have a team of reporters covering the super bowl. our sports director, dennis o'donnell, of course, along with vern glenn plus our own michelle griego, mike sugerman all making the trek to new
orleans next week. time now 4:52. too low for football's fashion police. >> the big five for the 9ers quarterback actually makes that runningback after the nfc championship game. look at you guys with your fancy-schmancy u-verse high speed internet. you know, in my day you couldn't just start
streaming six ways to sunday. you'd get knocked off. and sometimes, it took a minute to download a song. that's sixty seconds, for crying out loud. we know how long a minute is! sitting, waiting for an album to download. i still have back problems. you're only 14 and a half. he doesn't have back problems. you kids have got it too good if you ask me. [ male announcer ] now u-verse high speed internet has more speed options, reliability and ways to connect. rethink possible.
showers around the bay area. keep the umbrella handy. more moisture coming up in our direction. when will it end? we'll talk about that coming up. >> so far, so good on a lot of bay area bridges. here's a live look at the golden gate where it looks like they are dog some lane changes right about -- doing some lane changes right about now. bay bridge and san mateo bridge at the limit. much more "timesaver traffic" every 10 minutes coming up. we have developing news in the middle east. the uk warns of imminent threat against westerners in benghazi, libya and urging all brits to leave benghazi. the uk warns of an imminent
threat against westerners in benghazi, libya. once again, the nfl's fashion police have put the hammer down on the 49ers. this is crazy. frank gore fined $10,500, you see him wearing his socks down low? that's a no-no. he did it in the nfc championship game and a fine. >> he can afford it but that's a lot of money for socks. >> yeah. another 49er win, another bet was won. >> i love it. now it's time for the cbs anchors in atlanta to pay up on their game day wager on the nfc championship matchup. >> we are going to have you guys kaepernick and take a picture and post that picture on your facebook page as your profile photo. >> you also have to hold a bowl of peaches and sing, i left my heart in san francisco -- >> ♪ in san francisco ♪ >> wait, brandon is pulling a
beyonce and lip-synching. >> ♪ when i come home to you -- ♪ san francisco ♪ [ singing off key ] >> come on, here we go. your golden sun ♪ will shine for me ♪ >> wahoo! we still love the falcons, though. [ laughter ] >> you have to kaepernick. >> you have to kaepernick. >> oh, here we go. mwa! there, are you happy san francisco? we are never making bets again. >> well, i don't know about you but i'm very happy. >> it's tough when you lose, isn't it? but way to follow through. >> good sports i must say and good performers, too. so they did put their
kaepernick be photos on their facebook pages and they have to do that for four days because the 9ers won by four points. too bad it wasn't a couple of touchdowns. but we won so we'll take it. as you can see, they made it right there. facebook page lower left hand corner. >> it's kind of a rad morning team. >> i like their tatoos. [ laughter ] it is 4:57. the game is 2,000 miles away but the city of san francisco is preparing right now for the super bowl sunday. city leaders sound off on the team's future move to the south bay. >> and more 9er love from the silver state. the students who took kaepernicking to a whole new level.
